Having finished the Marginal Win Score individual player win/loss estimates, I now compare them to the results garnered by the two other metrics I really like, David Berri’s “Win Score” (from which, obviously, MWS is derived) and basketball-reference’s “Win Shares”. I then calculated the three metric results to produce what I call the player’s META wins and losses.
|MWS||Win Score||Win Shares||META|
As you can see, there is not really any consensus analysis on any of the Pistons, with the possible exception of Chris Wilcox. WScore and WShares agree on two players: Prince and Wilcox. MWS and WScore agree on five players: Villanueva, Daye, Maxiell, Bynum, and Summers. MWS and WShares agree on three players: Hamilton, Wilcox, and Summers.
Marginal Win Score tags Charlie Villanueva as the biggest loss producer, while Win Score and Win Shares both agree it should be Tayshaun Prince.
All three metrics agree that the Pistons Most Valuable Player, in terms of wins produced, was the rookie, C Greg Monroe, which bodes well for the Pistons future. Or, at least it is something to build upon.
